Oh wow the argument in that post against copyleft is just so broken!

If people don't want more copyleft licences because too many copyleft
licences will fragment the commons and harm freedom then the solution
is not to write them and to try to reduce the number of ones being
used for major projects, like the FSF and Wikimedia have. Not to use
licences that allow work to be made proprietary.
